World’s Largest Carpet Manufacturer Launches New China Factory with Two-Tier ERP

A Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary, Shaw Industries turned to NetSuite for its launch of a new 210,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Nantong, China, employing more than 250 workers and producing 5 million square yards of carpet tile a year for Asian markets. With its China plant, Shaw reduced the time previously required to deliver U.S.-made carpet tiles to the Asian market by several weeks. Shaw is also leveraging NetSuite to manage its 10 international subsidiaries with real-time visibility and global financial consolidation and reporting.
